Skills: Copy-editing and proofreading. I have a good eye for detail and grammar, as well as strong researching skills. I can mark up texts on-screen or on paper, using Adobe Acrobat Reader’s comment tools or with BSI symbols.

Subjects: Science and nature, popular film (specific knowledge of fantasy and musical genres, Japanese cinema / animation, and an in-depth knowledge of Walt Disney films, theme parks, and products), academic film, general history, music (music theory, film scores, pop music), equestrian topics and sports, food and baking.

Types of publication: My previous projects have mainly been large, illustrated non-fiction books. However, I would be happy to look at texts including – but not limited to – blogs, websites, publicity materials, marketing, menus, books, board games, articles, magazines.

About me: I am an Intermediate member of the CIEP (Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading) and studied BA (Hons) Creative Writing and Film Studies at university. I spent just over 4 years working at Dorling Kindersley (a non-fiction publisher in London) before going freelance.

I’m friendly and down-to-earth. I love all things Disney and enjoy sitting outside in the garden when the sun is out. In my spare time I’ll usually be catching up on all the brilliant telly that seems to be on at the moment; walking in the outdoors or watching a film with my partner; and attending our ballroom dance classes – which is not as posh as it sounds.
